Basic facts ladder


Many years ago one day Maui had a problem with the sun. Maui wanted to fix it. So he got his brothers. Maui and his brothers made some ropes out of flax. So they could make the sun go slow so the day can be long because Maui said the days are going to fast. Maui said to his brothers to throw the rope they made at the sun. He said to throw the ropes so they did. The ropes got the sun, Maui got his hook and, stared to get the sun with the hook and said you are going to fast. The sun said stop I will go slow. So Maui stopped. Maui and his brothers went home. So that is how the day now is slow. The End

My cat Herny. 

This is my cat Henry. He loves to sleep under my baters in my room on my bed. He is my favourite one of all my cats. He is a tabby cat. The bad thing about him is he fights with my other cat smoko and staws with claws. When we give the cats the food Henry will eat all of it. He is black white and brown. His eyes are green and yellow. I try to get him outside but he will just run away. I got him from my dads friend when I was 3 or 4 and he was 1.
